School Vision & Values
Grange First School Aims, Ethos and Values
At the heart of our school ethos and our Golden Rules we stress kindness, care and the Grange School Family. We are very proud to call ourselves the Grange First School Family. This family embraces children, teachers, families and our wider community. We aim to model through the way we treat each other, our key values of respect, tolerance, understanding and cooperation.
As a school, and as individuals, we know there are always things we can improve and we know that by working hard, working together and having the highest expectations we will get a little bit better every day!
Our vision for learning at Grange First School
Our school vision is to create an outstanding learning environment in which all of our children are enthusiastic, creative and happy learners with the confidence to express themselves and their ideas and develop their many individual talents.
At Grange First School we want to create an enriched Curriculum of enhanced breadth and depth that ensures ‘every child feels clever every day’. We aim to offer an education that embraces and values children from all backgrounds and that draws on the strengths and experiences of all of our families.
We believe that our curriculum should open doors to new opportunities, ideas and experiences and, above all, promote curiosity and a thirst for lifelong learning. When our children leave us at the end of year 4 they will have the knowledge and skills to equip them for the next stage of learning.
We aim in all that we do;
To be a friendly, welcoming school in which everyone feels valued and appreciated.
To create a safe, positive learning environment, with high expectations of achievement for all and in which children and adults explore and develop a thirst for lifelong learning
To raise levels of attainment and for all pupils, enabling them to achieve their personal best.
To provide opportunities for physical, spiritual, moral and cultural development that encourages personal and social responsibility and foster attitudes of respect for self and others.
To allow pupils, staff, parents and Governors to grow in confidence and independence, and to experience the value of cooperation.
To develop the ability of pupils, staff and Governors to think and act creatively and with imagination.
To take an active part in our local community and contribute to its development.
